The forum will give those diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the last three years an opportunity to connect with others in the Parkinson’s community, hear experts speak, and learn about resources resources that are available to them. There will also be Parkinson’s-specific activities and exercise, and acoustic music by Joe D’Urso and Joe Grushecky, who are both Light of Day Foundation board members.
